Meet our Recovery Manager
Hej! I'm Mel.
“You may have heard the pitter patter of feet on our roof if you’ve visited us lately. We’ve been very busy installing 2470 solar panels on the roof of our store that will make a significant impact on our power usage. During the day, we’ll be generating the majority of our power needs from the Queensland sun, and our warehouse is already up and running on solar power. Across Australia, our stores are installing over 16 000 solar panels on our stores and warehouses with an annual output of 5,495 million kilowatt hours (MWh) of electricity.

Now winter is finally setting in, it’s time to get cosy with thick curtains, warm rugs, toasty quilts, and soft blankets. Trap heat by covering cold tile surfaces and keeping your feet warm. Snuggle up on the sofa with a good book and a good reading light – choose an LED for a strong light that uses 85% less energy than incandescent bulbs and won’t get hot if you’re engrossed in a real page turner well into the night.

And if you’re into winter cooking, there’s lots of ways to make the most of every ounce of power coming out of your stove, have a look at some of our ideas below. Have a cosy, toasty winter!"


Solar panel installation
Putting the Queensland sunshine to work
IKEA Logan is proud to announce the installation of the second largest solar system in Queensland that is currently in progress in our store. As part of a national solar rollout to our five stores and two warehouses, the Logan system of 2,470 300 watt panels on our store alone will produce 741 kilowatts of power, reducing our carbon dioxide emissions by 781 tonnes per year. That's equal to 262 car emissions or the yearly power usage of 118 family homes per year.

It's just one part of our People + Planet Positive strategy for 2020, focusing on encouraging and contributing to a sustainable life at home for ourselves and the environment.

Save the planet. Share a blanket.
There's no need to reach for the heater during our Queensland winters. Keep the warm air in with thick curtains, warm quilts, rugs, and blankets. Extra cold at night? Add a sheepskin to your bed to keep you extra snug.

Sustainability in the kitchen
Why you should give a toss where you toss your waste.

There's no need to toss recycling into the 'too hard' basket. With our RATIONELL waste sorting system you can separate your recyclables right away in your kitchen. This avoids contaminating your recyclables with general waste. And the good old organic compost waste pays dividends with healthy soil for your garden.

The bins are easy to lift and carry out to the bin, and lids lock in odours from organic waste. RATIONELL is made to fit 40, 60 or 80 cm base cabinets.
Put your stove on double duty
Make the most of every element on your stove with the STABIL boiling insert range. Harness the heat from one saucepan to boil your veges or pasta instead of heating them separately. It will save you power and space too. And make sure you pop a lid on whenever you can - it will ensure an even heat and stop excess heat escaping.

Keeping you in charge.
With wireless keyboards, mice, headphones and everything else, the humble battery is needed everywhere. Avoid waste by using our of LADDA rechargable batteries and charger and avoid running out of batteries again. Use our TANDA timers to automatically switch of appliances that need to charge for a set periods of time - that way you'll avoid running power longer than you need to.

Sustainable salmon
Ensuring there's plenty of fish left in the sea
“IKEA recently participated in a WWF-initiated dialogue that led to the development of a new standard of sustainable salmon farming, which we will apply to all of the salmon we sell and serve. After all, we need to do our part to ensure that there’s plenty of fish left in the sea for the future.”
- Olivia Ross, IKEA Head of Sustainability Communication.

Classified as an oily fish, lax is considered to be healthy due to its high protein and Omega 3 fatty acid content, which are important for brain function. Lax also has lots of vitamin D for healthy bones and muscles.

IKEA has committed to source salmon only from ASC certified (Aquaculture stewardship council) farms by August 2015 at the latest.
